The 8th annual Totally Concrete Expo promises to feature exciting exhibitions and robust workshops from leading construction industry brands when it takes place at the Ticketpro Dome in Northgate.
Scheduled from Monday, 23 to Wednesday, 25 August, the hybrid event – with both a live and digital element – will offer built environment professionals a one-stop-shop to identify viable project tenders and the materials needed to complete the work on budget and on time.
It'll also offer the widest networking opportunities in the construction industry on the continent
The expo will be attended by architects, concrete technologists, interior designers, distributors, retailers, real estate owners, contractors, engineers, quantity surveyors and the like.
Event organisers say industry players who attend the expo will be able to build relationships, evaluate new technologies and overcome industry challenges while identifying new and future commercial partners.
“To excel in a changing industry, you need the latest trends, the soundest best practices and a crystal-clear picture of where the industry is headed,” says Event Director, Tracy-Lee Behr.
The expo will also showcase manufacturers, transporters and processors of concrete on the continent, offering them a platform to access South Africa and Africa’s most influential project owners.
The Totally Concrete Expo will take place alongside the African Construction Expo, African Smart Cities Summit and WoodEX for Africa, the only events on the continent dedicated to the concrete and cement industries. Attendees can look forward to a three-day event with more international exhibitors showcasing their latest products and solutions.
“This event is a significant contributor to the economic growth, recovery and transformation of Southern Africa’s construction industry and places a special focus on buyer-and-seller engagements,” she says.
With built environment professionals from over 45 countries visiting the expo each year, Behr notes that the expo will provide the platform for distinctive opportunities for business expansion, networking and learning.
She explains that the expo will provide professionals in the construction industry with free practical and technical training workshops. “It will allow industry professionals to be up-skilled and to find new suppliers as well as to interact with current and potential new suppliers.”
With multi-million rand projects planned and underway in Southern Africa, Behr adds that this is the right moment for built environment professionals to access a highly profitable market to grow their business.
“The expo is Africa’s largest gathering of buyers and sellers that represent the entire built environment value chain. We are extremely proud to present WoodEX for Africa, which is firmly established as the continent’s leading timber industry showcase, at the same time and location as African Construction Expo,” says Director of WoodEX for Africa, Stephan Jooste.
